(Dec. 29, 2017) They say, “How you spend your New Year will determine how the rest of the year will go.”

Last New Year’s Eve, I was so exhausted from working all day, then taking photos for this paper, that I had a glass of champagne and was asleep before midnight. This year I will serve tables all day, and return to walk around with a glowing shots tray, decked out in glow sticks and a sparkling outfit, of course.

I love parties, and wish I could make every single one happening this New Year’s Eve. I have compiled a list of places having celebrations and most are giving a champagne toast with party favors galore. I hope everyone celebrates the way Jay Gatsby would. Cheers to you!
